The 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) will feature a collaboration between girl group f(x) and British electronic pop duo Pet Shop Boys!
On November 18, Kim Ki Woong, the director of this year’s award show, announced this special collaboration at a press conference. “We considered which artist would best fit this year’s theme of TechArt,” he says. “It was during that process that we chose the electronic music group Pet Shop Boys from among overseas artists.”
Pet Shop Boys is a legendary group in the electronic pop scene that formed back in 1981. They’re well known for their hits such as “West End Girls,” “What Have I Done to Deserve This,” and “Go West.”
Kim Ki Woong goes on to explain why they chose f(x) to collaborate with the group. “They’re the top of all the groups in Korea who are doing electronic music,” he says. “Pet Shop Boys were also pleased with this choice.”
“If everything goes well in the time remaining until the show, I expect that it will be an excellent performance of a quality that is rare to see throughout the world,” Kim Ki Woong adds.
This year’s MAMA will be taking place in Hong Kong on December 2 at the AsiaWorld-Expo.
